SimCity

In other strange news today, Electronic Arts has finally pulled their collective head out of it's ass and is slated to release a new version of the classic SimCity in 2013. I'm such a happy person right now. I've been waiting for this day for so long. Hopefully they will release it for OS X in addition to Windows.

I have been playing since SimCity 2000. And that has been a real long time ago. :P

A Macintosh Plus? Wow. I never got to use one of those. In elementary we had Apple IIe's and Mac LC's. My grandpa bought a Centris 660av and bought SimCity 2000 for me to use when I came to visit. I love that game and always will

I remember the apple IIe. I had a computer class that we had to type 45 words per minute to pass. I changed the clock settings so I could type 65 or so. Ha ha

Cheater, lol. Did you ever play SimCity growing up?

I grew up playing it on the Commodore 64. The little squares filled in with more black as things built. Hahaha...it changed so much since then.

 

Yes it has digiblur. I still use SimCity 4 sometimes.

I did play sim city, but it wasn't until late in its life. My parents didn't believe in technology or something. Our house was like the dark ages. I did a lot of hunting though.

Didn't believe in technology? You poor tortured child, lol. My mom embraced technology because she used it at work all day long.

I had a Nintendo, and then my dad won me a Playstation. I had a Sega Genesis. Plus all my computer games. And computers in the house since I was 8.

You had a Commodore 64, too? :hah:

I had a VIC 20 with only a tape drive (I think it was a 1531 model). I learned 6502 machine language before I even learned PASCAL, C, or FORTRAN.

 

This made me think of this Futurama episode with the robot who had functioned off tapes...

Didn't get much into the sim city game. I played dinopark tycoon though as a lil kid...

 

Old days there when computers had the GIANT floppy drives to play like Indian trail. Lol

I liked Dinopark Tycoon. Didn't play it too much as I only had a demo copy.

    • It’s a neat and seemingly valid / effective strategy that, at least from my understanding, is only really used by VZW
    • Those are usually left over from the initial AWS deployment, so all run B13/B66 with support for BC0/BC1 (although that’s been shut off on most sites). No NR. Sites with the later Ericsson radios got an OTA update and broadcast B2. On those sites, a B5 OTA update was also available (and tested), but ultimately rolled back. Putting up all that power/spectrum severely degraded the B13 output.  The site atop Crystal Mountain is another story and uses the same setup as the site on the ridge near Neilton. These antennas were selected for their vertical beamwidth. Most modern directional antennas have small vertical beamwidths and would require extreme downtilt to cover the road next to a steep ridge. Thus, they would have a severely limited coverage footprint beyond the road. Omnis can be a better choice in these instances, especially when there’s LoS to the coverage objective (since they’ll generally have lower gain figures). Omnis also don’t run in to the horizontal sector edge problem, which can be difficult to optimize for with directional antennas that have complex or irregular 3D gain profiles. That’s why on a lot of sites on mountains, you’ll see wider antennas used. For example, the Verizon site on Joyce Ridge has three sectors with 80-degree HBW antennas. 
    • Do you know what RAN is behind those Omni's? LTE (bands?) are they pushing any NR through them? Very curious   edit: I guess I could check cellmapper etc but you might know more nuance!
    • N41 here has been expanded from 140Mhz to 180Mhz.  Speeds seem the same so they just need to work on backhaul
    • I noticed today that T-mobile has shut of B41 LTE in the Louisville area and widened the 2nd n41 carrier to 80MHz. That just leaves them with 5x5 B12, 10x10 B2, and two 10x10 B66 carriers on LTE, everything else is in NR (besides their 2G network). They have 20x20 n71, 20x20 n25, 5x5 n25, and 180MHz n41.
